Fuller Out at Habitat for Humanity

Americus-  Habitat for Humanity headquarters in Americus had been closed for about 30 minutes Monday night when a lock and key company was at work on the doors.

The workers wouldn't say if they were changing the locks because of the Fuller's termination.

The firings come as a surprise to many, but there's been an ongoing internal struggle between the Fullers and Habitat's board. No one at Habitat for Humanity International would comment, but the organization released a statement saying,

"The termination decisions culminate several months of differences between the Fullers and the board over an allegation of inappropriate personal behavior by Millard Fuller toward a now-former female employee, and the Fullers' behavior as the investigation into that complaint unfolded."

The board also cited a pattern of public comments by the Fullers' that have been divisive and disruptive to the organization's work.

"We have tried repeatedly over the past several months to resolve differences in a spirit of respectful confidentiality. In every instance, the Fullers' ultimately have rejected or been openly critical of any and all steps taken toward appropriate compromise," said board chairman Rey Ramsey in the statement.

In a small restaurant next door to Habitat, most community members had heard about the termination. But no one wanted to talk on camera, saying they had heard many rumors during the past several months.

Regardless of how it ends for the Fullers, what will never change is that the couple began what has become a worldwide mission of building homes.
